Oskarr's Shelving Kudos

Post by Seven Sons of Sin » Thu Jan 07, 2021 11:17 pm

Hurrah! Next week I start a new job, which will take much time and energy. The downside is that there is little room for Arelith in all of that.
Over the next few days, I’ll be trying to wrap up some final loose ends but then, Oskarr is being shelved. I would’ve rolled him, but there is just some really big beats I still want to explore – so I guess, whenever I have the time in many months from now, the cheery Tyrran will return.

I started playing him in April-ish of this year, and he’s largely been a blast. Thank you to all those who took the time to answer his questions – whether they were innocent, or a part of his many investigations.

Oskarr was a premise of 3 ingredients – two old legendary Arelithians (Shaalira the Younger + Nautilus) + a little bit of childish humour and innocence. (The joke is that he should’ve been a hin). Hopefully that paid off in the end. I immensely enjoy the investigative approach to roleplay, and honestly, it was people giving him the time of day that really kicked things off, so let’s get going –

Old Friends:

Garrett Kelson
Alina Muk
Ciaran Grady
Isabella Isherwood
Reinhart Gelt
Cyllin Skaev
Kylar Huxley
Tahlal Baequirretyn
Tristan Wilkinson

All of these characters, through varying degrees of friendship, have been central forces in Oskarr’s narrative, whether it meant exploring new facets of character, posing challenges, creating new emotional connections, or just being there.

The Unresolved:

Theodora Felmir
Bron Mannard
Sylvia Naern

These are those that I wish Oskarr had more time with, but, perhaps unbeknownst to them, made a huge splash in the direction and development of his story. Short, but sweet.

The Dads:

Vance Gravelle
Richard Kaidaris
Derristan Barley
Orestes Fonte Bella

These characters, perhaps more than others, picked up on Oskarr’s unspoken need for an authority figure – to be a new “Father Yakov.” Each were cheeky about it in their own way, but all resulted in powerful moments even if they seemed so ordinary.

The Enemies Barely Met or Unmet:

Void Cult Others
Nick Aethur
Von Brandts
Lavok Xun’virr
The Black Host
Those pesky goblins
Lora Gallenson
Garinox Isley
Ilphaeryl Xun’virr

Each of these faces or groups has created a bucketload of roleplay for me – with minimal or absolutely zero interaction with Oskarr. It’s a sign of real antagonism, and the above should be applauded for being deep wells of roleplay.

Neither friend nor enemy but something fascinating:

Emma Young
Denny Walvish
Elspeth Derlson
The Fellowship

All of the above have done incredible things in their own right, but more importantly, have been driving forces in Oskarr’s roleplay and he wouldn’t be the same without each of them. Even if all of their relationships were weird, brief, or oppositional. Sometimes a 5 minute conversation can spark a month of roleplay.

The Recent:

Keth’ym Evanara
Giscard de Soleil
Mackenzie Graves

The most exciting thing about Arelith is that you never know who you will meet next, and what is going to be in store. These are folks who’ve I had the pleasure of recent encounters with, and have a tinge of sadness knowing that Oskarr's departure is something of a premature end.

I can only echo what I have already said before.

It's just a shame how real life does not allow for the amount of free time we used to have to play together, otherwise, Orestes and Oskarr would've certainly ended up doing something very fun together.

Hopefully whenever I have the chance to play again in any meaningful way, you'll be kicking around too.

Ah noooo, I've been looking for him to finally respond to his note! Drat! Either way, I'm super glad I got the chance to RP with him, he as was an absolutely adorable bean and I'm glad he's not done with!

Aww Oskarr!! There was a charm about him that I enjoyed in our friendly ;) RP, as short as it was. Hopefully there will be more sometime, in the future.

Oskarr has been an absolute delight! We haven't had a ton of play together, but each time he and Keth'ym have been able to meet are among my favorite scenes.

I hope someday to meet him again.

Oskarr is an absolute MVP and I wish Tilly could've spent more time investigating chicanery with him.

I'm going to miss Oskarr. I hope to see him again soon.

All the best of luck with your new job.

For my part, as the demands of being an adult and having a job crowd out more and more of my free time, I find myself appreciating the time and talent of those I spend time with in game all the more. I'm glad I got to play with you again on this character, and hope I'll be around whenever your time permits you to come back.

Take care out there.

I'm sad Giscard didn't get to have more time with Oskarr, I really liked the character. But I hope to see him again one day in the future!

Oh and congrats on the new job! :D

So glad to have met Oskarr. He was an absolute joy to interact with! I only wish I had more time to have met him more often.

Thank you for the roleplay I did get to have with him though!

Had some good, but very limited encounters with Oskarr with my gnome and my feyknight. I am not surprised at all that you are the one playing him. Best of luck!

Despite some earlier tensions, things had just started to shape up in Simone and Oskarr's relationship. I look forward to RPing with Oskarr more when you return. Good luck with the new job.
